Gifts &ásouvenirs are the most sought after items in the island. After all having visited Langkawi, you will like to take back some gifts for your dear ones and some souvenirs to take back the memories. No wonder there are hundreds of shops that have mushroomed in the island selling all kinds of gifts &ásouvenir items. 
 
 
 
Walk along the streets of Pantai Cenang or Kuah, every other shop would be a Gift &áSouvenir shop or at least have a section dedicated to that. 
 
So the next question is what kind of items are you looking for? If you are a serious buyer looking for some authentic art &ácraft ware, crystal &áglasswork, then there are some places in the island that will blow your mind away. But you will need some money in your pocket or else you will only keep watching such handcrafted wonders.

If this is what you are looking for then one such great area to visit is Craft Complex, a large craft house near the northern shoreline of the island showcasing intricate artwork &ádesigns by local and reputed artists &áartisans. You will get forest based products, exquisite silver &ábrass ware, paper based products, wood &ábamboo carvings, clothes &áapparel, batik prints and even Sogkets that are made of gold &ásilver threads being interwoven into a textile. 
 
Right next to the Craft Complex is another gem of an artwork studio, Faizy Crystal which is a glass blowing studio making exquisite glass items like figures of birds, animals, flowers, then flower vases, plates and lot more. You can see the artists making the pieces right in front of you. Another such similar place is Langkawi Crystal in Kuah town.
